Use liquid soap or body wash with warm water but must clean before
latex hardens in brush. Have also read of folks using Isopropyl
Myristate to clean latex from brushes.

 Once it has dried in your brush it's probably hopeless. I always dip
the
 brush in soap, or run it across a bar of soap, before dipping it in
the
 liquid latex, and repeat frequently during use.
